Academic Departmental Program Review (ADPR)

 

Overview:

Academic Departmental Program Review (ADPR) at New Mexico State University Las Cruces (NMSU-LC) is a periodic process used to evaluate and enhance overall academic program effectiveness in a way that supports institutional accreditation and strategic planning. The ADPR process is conducted on a departmental basis, except for a few interdisciplinary programs, and occurs on a five-year cycle. Programs with external accreditation that meet the overall ADPR expectations may be exempted from the program review requirement. 

Guidelines and Resources:

The ADPR Handbook is a single, downloadable document that contains

  • Guidelines for the overall ADPR process
  • A timeline for 2017-18 Cycle
  • Instructions for preparation of the self-study report
  • Review team guidelines and information
  • Site visit planning information and instructions
  • Sample documents

Action plans and annual reports from completed program reviews are available from the schedule tables below. All ADPR documents from completed program reviews are stored in the Document Repository on NMSU’s ADPR SharePoint Site. The site also includes working spaces for faculty and staff involved in the ADPR process. Access to the SharePoint site is limited by the academic department.

5-year process milestones for departments in the 2016-17 cycle:
